No - stress or other issues may cause your period to be delayed a day or so but not miss a period altogether. ok if you missed your period one month do not worry just be happy

stress, anxioty, and or depression can cause you to miss a period. hormone imbalances can also cause you to miss a period. changes in diet and exercise cause miss periods. if you have missed your period you are probably not pregnant, you are probably just stressing your body. see your doctor for more information.

It depends on your height, weight, body mass, nutritional level, regularity of menstruation cycle, amongst many other factors. Stress alone generally does not cause one to miss their period.

If you have missed a period because of stress, answer this question.

Besides stress, some things that can cause a missed period are pregnancy, a hormonal imbalance, a big increase in exercise, and certain medications. Also, a big increase or drop in weight or an eating disorder can cause someone to miss her period.

i think it could, depending on your stress levels.

Yes. Sometimes stress can cause you to miss a period, but I would say more so prolong your period and sometimes stress can bring on an unexpected period. That happened to me a year ago, and I was terrified because it was brown, and it made me think I was pregnant. When I went to the doctor, I found out it was a forced period caused by stress. Always check things out with a doctor, though.

No but stress can delay it. It also depends on how old you are, if you are normally regular or not.

Most definitely! A sudden drop in weight or an extreme diet can also cause a woman to miss or alter her period. Stress, too, can cause a missed period. However, see your Health Care Professional if you miss your period and are sexually active - even if you are using birth control. remember, the only sure fire way to prevent pregnancy is to practice abstinence!

I'm not a doctor. Stress in general can cause you to miss a period, so a traumatic event such as a car accident, a death of a loved one, or even a huge test can cause you to miss your period. And if it's just causing you to be late, it's amazing how quickly after you relax that your normal period will start.

Yes, stress can delay a period.

Actually, yes. Stress can cause your period to come late. If you are really worried, try a cheap pregnancy test. That will tell you for sure if you are or not.

User Avatar

Stress, drug use, lack of nutritional dietry intake particularly when the period has not come for a number of months.

Yes, if you have just started your period then it can take up to two years for it to be completely regulated. After this, a sudden illness or stress can cause it to be late.
